Hague Academy of International Law - Summer Programme

The famous Summer Courses of the Hague Academy take place over a period of six weeks: three weeks of public international law and three weeks of private international law. Since ninety years thousands of students attended these Summer Courses, representing between sixty and ninety nationalities each year. Students have the opportunity to attend lectures of internationally re-known scholars of international law and thus attending courses of a high level. Many of the alumni have become well-known in the judiciary, diplomacy and academic world. Studying in The Hague, the Legal Capital of the World, the Academy provides students the opportunity to have contacts with the International Court of Justice, the international criminal courts, the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal, the Bureau of the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the Conference on Private International Law, and other institutions. During the summer, the students have access to the Peace Palace Library and all of its resources.
